NUM­BER OF AUSSIES THAT HAVE WATCHED ESPORTS, AND MOST OF THEM WANT TO DO SO AGAIN Ac­cord­ing to a re­port con­ducted by global re­search group YouGov, 15% of Aus­tralian adults have ad­mit­ted to watch­ing esports, equat­ing to around 4 mil­lion peo­ple. What’s more, 80% of these peo­ple that dipped their toes in the world of com­pet­i­tiveg­am­ing-watch­ing say that they would do so again, and over 2 mil­lion Aus­tralians watch it at least monthly. Based on the im­pres­sive spec­ta­tor­ship in the US and China (which we’re cur­rently lag­ging be­hind), YouGov is pre­dict­ing a sim­i­lar growth in in­ter­est in the Aus­tralian mar­ket.
